4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Great aroma that is filled with lychee, mango and some pine. Taste is very balanced and blood grape, mango and pine are very present in the mouth. This is one of the better Brewdog beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
11.2 oz bottle, best before 16-09-11. Foggy orange brown with a creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel, cat and dough with fleeting hints of citrus. With the first sip the sweetness in the aroma gives way to a jolt of hop oil. Medium to full body, almost syrupy, with enough fizz to lighten it up. Taste is cane sugar, grapefruit peel, a touch of vodka and soft pine. A little heavy handed.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. This is my second time having this, for added perspective. Pours dark burnt orange with fluffy off-white head that never goes away. Nose is BIG citrus and pine, huge caramel malt backbone. Tastes of orange, salted grapefruit, explosive hops, more caramel in the foreground. Incredibly long, heavy finish. A perfectly integrated, yet bracing IPA. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer is a bright amber-colored with a thin, high creamy head. The smell is hoppy, bitter, very spicy, with lots of citrus. The IPA starts very hoppy and fruity, citrus comes through a lot, paired with fantastic aroma hops. The middle part shows very herbal, with lots of citrus and lots of aroma hops. Very hoppy aftertaste, with hints of mint flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy cloudy orange-amber, with a medium beige head, fine clinging lacing. Thick aroma of bread, grass, grapefruit, toffee, with some berry, floral and spicy notes, very malty. Full body, crisp, smooth and velvety, dry. Medium initial sweetness, short citrus tartness midpalate with some alcohol hotness, then a medium bitter lingering finish. A mighty brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is a lovely mix of bread, caramel, citrus hops, fruit. The appearance is the common amber, white head. The flavor is a lot like the aroma, bread, caramel, fruit, citrs, light pine. Certainly a malt forward beer. Medium to medium thick in body, sticky mouthfeel. Nice finish of citrus and pine hops, lingering. A bit overhyped and overpriced, but an excellent beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this the last day before the BBD. Hazy amber. The aroma is honeyed and florals with tropical fruit accents. Pretty rich, chewy caramel stuf with light lychee-type hop notes. Ok, for style.
